Packed with startling twists and turns, Ronald Neame's effervescent Gambit is a stylish and unpredictable heist-con comedy, notable for its fabulous sets and costumes and the charismatic performances of Shirley MacLaine, Michael Caine, and Herbert Lom.
"One of the classic comic-heist movies of the '60s, Ronald Neame's GAMBIT stars Michael Caine as Harry Dean, the cockney con-man with the perfect plan to steal a priceless statue. He just needs the right accomplice to play the part of his wife and Shirley MacLaine's Eurasian showgirl has just the face he's looking for. Events don't unfold quite as planned, but then little is what it seems in a plot that keeps the audience guessing as it twists and turns to the very end." Second Sight
